Donald Trump has won the presidency in the United States and in Alaska. In Bethel, Hillary Clinton took the majority of support along with Republican Lisa Murkowski for U.S. Senate, Democrat Steve Lindbeck for U.S. House, and the unchallenged Democrat Zach Fansler for Alaska House District 38 Representative.
Alaska also voted to reelect Murkowski, but unlike Bethel, voted to keep Republican Don Young in the U.S. House. Bethel voted with the rest of the state to pass Ballot Measure 1, which will register eligible residents to vote when signing up for the permanent fund dividend. Bethel also supported passing Ballot Measure 2, which would allow the state to borrow money to pay for student loans and lower interest rates on student debt, but the ballot was defeated by 56 percent opposition statewide.
In the courts, Bethel voted to retain all judges on its ballot.
